Hello all. It’s been far too long since I wrote here or even tried to continue my coding journey. Back in June I had my work schedule switched around on me. It’s actually given me more free time. Time I planned to use to learn to code. But for the last 4 months I’ve been doing . . . well, not much. A little bit of work on the house and in the yard, but really, not much at all. It’s time to get back to work! I’ve enrolled in a Coursera Course. It’s called Programming and the Web for Beginners. In all honesty I’m less interested in this course than I’d like to be, but it’s the first course in a specialization on Java programming that I’m very interested in. However, I’m not enrolling in the specialization itself, but rather hope to just jump into the individual courses as they come up. To enroll in a specialization on coursera costs $350. At this time I don’t have the funds to invest in this little project of mine, so therefore I’ll stick to the free parts.
This is a 4 week code, with an estimated 3-5 hours of study required per week. This shouldn’t be too tough for me as I know have 4 days off a week (although in that time I do have some other responsibilities such as looking after and spending quality time with my 2 year old daughter and doing work around the house). I’d like to encourage anyone reading this that’s interested in coding to join me! It’d be fun to get a group that’s doing this together so we can discuss it as we go. If you think about it, the course can be done in as little as 1 hour a day after work (if you work a traditional 5 day work week). Or take an hour after the kids go to bed, whatever it might be. LET’S DO THIS!
